Introduction to the Messages view

In the Messages view of Nokia Communication Centre, you can view the text messages and multimedia messages stored on your mobile device. You can create and send messages, reply to and forward messages. Multimedia messages can contain images, videos and music, and they can be converted into mobile-optimised format. For more information, see Conversion options for MMS messages.

Working with messages

You can begin working with messages by clicking Messages in the Nokia PC Suite main window. The Messages view opens showing the message folders on your device. Nokia PC Suite makes it easy to manage the message folders, and organise messages in folders. For more information, see Copying messages.


You can only browse, edit, send, and delete messages when your device is connected to the PC.

To avoid losing important data, it is recommended that you use Nokia Content Copier to back up the messages from your device to a PC. For more information, see Overview in the Nokia Content Copier help.


You can easily search the whole Messages view content. Type what you are looking for in the Search box that is in the top right corner of the Messages view, and Nokia PC Suite will automatically begin looking for matches to your query. Matching items are listed in the view. Double-click an item to open it in the message viewer. To clear the Search box, click Clear.
